Aug 31, 2006 -- Internet company Google Inc (NasdaqGS:GOOG) has revealed plans that will enable consumers to download and print a variety of books free of charge, using its Book Search service. The new service is part of Google's Library Project, which involves five libraries. The company is digitalising books to make them searchable at http://books.google.com.
Consumers will reportedly be able to download PDF files of out-of-copyright books, print them out and run keyword searches. According to The Associated Press, the service previously only enabled consumers to read the books online.
Books which are under copyright are not included in the new download service.
